"Education" is awfully general - and vague. Tried "lesson" "instructor" "professor" "instruction" "class" "learning" "dialogue" "teach" and "teacher" and NONE of those could be accepted?

maybe female for feminine, house for domestic, and gardens/flowers for botanical would also be good type-ins?

circopithican: of or relating to monkeys. For some reason I always remembered that from my Creative Writing teacher's dictionary of obscure words, though I don't think I've ever seen the word anywhere else including other dictionaries.

@Nyackjohn: "Learning" or "Teaching" would have worked.

@kalbahamut: "House" will work now.

I tried "girl" for Feminine. While it's good that most answers accept both singular and plural forms of the answer, the answers themselves are oddly inconsistent in that respect.

"Optic" should be about light. Eye just relates to the human body.

Make that +2. And corporeal is anything to do with the physical world...as opposed to ethereal.

Had no idea what cutaneous meant, but I got the answer because "Cat" was accepted even though I typed "cats", then I started to type in "Kings" for royalty, and the rollover 's' from cats + the 'kin' from kings = skin. Nice side effect from accepting singular answers. Thanks!

When I first clicked one of these quizzes, I had no idea what to expect. "Words Pertaining to Things" is possibly the vaguest name you could give to indicate a quiz topic, apart from perhaps just "Stuff". Presumably all words pertain to things in one way or another.

Could 'matter' be accepted for corporeal? Good quiz, not too easy but not too hard, I think.
